CygWin applications converting a relative pathname with drive letter A:FOO
(but not A:\FOO, as that specifies an absolute path on A:) will get //AFOO
as the POSIX pathname, which is incorrect. ("cygpath -u A:FOO" to confirm
this). The correct conversion should take into account $!A, and provide an
absolute pathname (since POSIX pathnames can't support a relative pathname
to a file on another drive. I'd provide a fix for this myself, but I just
started with CYGWIN, and haven't loaded sources yet.
